>> reporter: back here live at the board. you can see the jfk flights say they are on time. those are for tonight. officials say expect those to change to canceled for new york airports. the one silver lining is d.c. up to boston. those flights may bring flights in and depart. airlines may look to add flights tonight and red eye options. the best option for you as a passenger is to check directly with the airline. reporting live for nbc bay area news. >> stephanie, thanks. here in the bay area, we had nothing to complain about. just some fog. just some fog. we want to take a closer look at sandy and the projected path and intensity as we head through the next 48 hours. i want to start with some storm reports. new york, record storm surge. we saw the water come up 14 feet above sea level. also in new york, record wave at
32.5 feet. that is almost three stories high. record low pressure for a northeast storm. these are some of the record that have already come in. expect more to drop throughout the day. here is the latest look at sandy. it is packing winds of 45 miles per hour. it has dropped from 65-mile-an-hour sustained winds which we had four hours ago. as it continues to push over land, its moisture supply is getting cut off. it is weakening significantly. as we head through the next 48 hours, we will see this storm push into canada. this is what we're expecting. it will push westward across southern pennsylvania this afternoon. it should take a turn to western new york tonight and more into canada as we get into late wednesday. overall, we're talking about 8 million people without power. winds are still very strong. we're expecting those numbers to continue to go up and the damage is unprecedented at this point. we will cover this for you for
the next few weeks. >> we will keep you posted. moving on now to other news. san jose investigators are sorting out what sparked a fire on the home on linda flora street. the one-alarm fire happened after 6:00 this morning. a family was evacuated from the home. the good news is no one was hurt. the fire caused heavy damage. firefighters are investigating a report of an explosion at the home. the man accused of abducting and killing sierra lamar is expected back in court this afternoon. it is still unclear whether he will waive his right to appear. garcia torres is accused of abducting lamar back in march. he was charged with murder although her body was never found. we are back to sandy. sandy affecting late night tv. jimmy fallon in front of an
empty audience. i'm bob redell. i'll have everything you need to know if you want to attend the parade tomorrow. the dow is not up or down. the markets are closed for the second straight day. we will take a look at that in business news. marla mentioned to fog out there. there it is. low hanging clouds over the san mateo bridges. christina loren will be back to fill us in on the local weather forecast. looking good for tomorrow's parade. hang in there.
another element that sandy is affecting is the presidential campaign now just seven days away. >> campaigns are on hold because of the superstorm.
tracie potts has that side of the story. >> reporter: instead of campaigning today as planned, president obama is at the white house and warning americans. >> please listen to what the state and local officials are saying. when they tell you to evacuate, you need to evacuate. >> reporter: he declared emergencies in eight states, plus washington, d.c. before the storm. virginia and west virginia were added early this morning along with the first federal disaster areas. new jersey and new york. with the president busy in washington, clinton filled in for a rally in ohio. >> he said this storm is out of hand. i have to handle it. i said, mr. president, that is the right call. >> reporter: governor mitt romney is at a rally in ohio today. he is urging supporters to donate. >> swing by. give a hand. >> make sure we do our best to help those impacted by the
storm. >> anything he says injects politics into it. and so you want to be careful if you're the romney team to keep an eye on it, obviously. but don't necessarily try to get in front of the story. >> reporter: one week before the election, polls are tied, but campaigning at a standstill. >> i'm not worried at this point about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on the families. >> reporter: tracie potts, nbc news, washington. the stock markets are closed for the second straight day. scott mcgrew says officials at the two largest exchanges are working hard to make sure the shutdown does not extend to a third consecutive day. >> good morning. if the markets were closed tomorrow, that would be a problem. tomorrow is the last day of the month. the day the books are closed on stock contracts and portfolios. the nyse is running tests on the
secondary system just in case the closure lasts through a third day. they will be able to make the trades they need to tomorrow. this really isn't a computer issue as much as a people issue. you can't get in or out of lower manhattan. streets closed and mass transit is shutdown. now the u.s. department of labor has updated us this morning saying it will release the october jobs numbers as scheduled. remember, this will be the last time we will see those all important numbers before the presidential election. those will come on friday. hopefully everything back to normal by then. back to you. >> all right. scott mcgrew, thank you for the update. we are dealing with fog in the bay area. let's go to christina loren with the update. >> san francisco is known for fog. we will see the sun come out. it will take a couple of hours in the city. by 1:00 p.m., it will be clearing. you can see that vividly.
